3 Brilliant Vivid Sydney Installations We Can’t Wait For This Year

The event will feature a dreamy floating walkway and an eerie projection over the rocks.

After being cancelled last year because of the pandemic, Vivid Sydney is gearing up to make a splashing return and drench Sydney with light and colour. Here are three installations we are most excited for.

Point Of View over Corner Playfair Place and George Street at The Rocks, gives us perspective into the mind of an artist at work. Through immersive projective technology, we will get to witness Sydney residents from all walks of life. The creation of painter Brad Robson in collaboration with Esem Projects, this artwork is an intimate look at the overall process of painting and bringing different subjects to life.

Point of View

Customs House, Circular Quay, yet another historical Sydney landmark will play canvas for Hong Kong based animator and illustrator, Ho Sheung Ning. In his artwork titled Vorax, the artist brings to us the story of a mischievous thief’s rise to glory through some captivating animation and visual effects.

Ephemeral is set to be an immersive walkway of 200 glistening and colourful bubble-like spheres, floating over the water at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour. The bubbles are created with a colour-reflecting dichroic film that morphs and changes with the changing light of the sun resulting in a stunning visual display of colour over water day and night. This luminous light and sound artwork is the brainchild of Atelier Sisu, a Sydney-based design studio led by artists Renzo B. Larriviere and Zara Pasfield.

Vivid Sydney will take place from Friday August 6 until Saturday August 28 this year and the full line up of events is set to be released later in May.
